What an excellent dinner at the Sri Lanka restaurant. The food is excellent and superbly presented. The options offer a wide range of menu options. Will certainly be back Egg hoppers are brilliant as is the roti !!

Having grown up with Sri Lankan food I can say without any doubt that the food from the Blue Elephant is very authentic. What's more the price was very reasonable.

We were a group of 10 who visited this restaurant and decided on a buffet. The food provided was top class as was the service from the manager to table staff. Priced well considering we had a bottle of bubbly, soft drinks and Sri Lankan beer. Definitely no complaints. Recommend to try.

We ate as a large group here & it was an excellent meal. I had the goat curry and it was amazing, as was the roti bread & accompaniments. My companions all enjoyed their meals, except for those who chose Western style meals (but we found that irrelevant as it is a Sri Lankan restaurant!!). Would definitely eat back here... More

Good assortment on the menu of Sri Lankan and Indian food plus some western food if you're not in the mood for some spice. I had lamb , rice and a hopper - all tasty and well presented. The waitress was very helpful describing to diners what to expect from the menu. Pricing is good too.

A restaurant that is lacking in presentation is surpassed by its outstanding menu options. The food is delicious and plentiful. Also a enjoyed a Lion Strong lager with the meal, but at 8:8 only have the one. The service is rather slow but irrelevant as we had a magnificent evening. If you're not in a hurry you won't be disappointed... More

Decided to give this restaurant a go as I was staying in the hotel on business. Wanted to get room service and be done with it. Ordered the Palak paneer curry and a drink, paid for it and headed upstairs. Shortly afterwards received a call to state the curry was not available. If I had been informed while I was... More

A group of us went with a Sri-Lankan friend to try first hand the foods she had been telling us about. We had wonderful service from the staff and had a fantastic selection of starters, mains and desserts to try.
